View Full Version : Help with choosing componets<450$

12-03-2009, 03:25 PM
I am looking for a new/used set of components for around $450 or less that would get the most out of a Sundown Sax-100.4D amp. I am looking for components that will get "LOUD" to hang with a 15" RE-XXX sub, but not distort doing it. I would prefer a set that would get "LOUD" without sounding ******, than one that one with not as much output but better SQ.

I have been doing some research and a lot of speakers fit in the price range. I just don't know which ones would be best for my aforementioned goal to get loud while still sounding good.
Here are some speakers that fall into the price range, feel free to suggest any speakers that u think would better suit my needs.

Focal KR2/K2P ----used or ebay

Morel TEMPO 6 ----200$(ebay)
Morel DETECH OVATION 6 ----400$(ebay)
Morel HYBRID OVATION II 6 ----find used
Morel Elate ----find used(saw some for $500 ebay yesterday)

Rainbow CMX ----300$ online
Rainbow Germ ----find used
Rainbow Profi Vanadium Line ----find used

Hertz MLK 165(MILLE) ----find used ($400-$450)
Hertz HSK 165(HIGH ENERGY) ----$250 online

Hybrid clarus ----find used

ReAudio XXX ----$320 ebay'

BOSTON PRO ----find used or online
Boston SPZ60 ----find used or online

since you have a 4channel amp why not go with raw driver?
it will be hard to have a single comp set keep up with a XXX

12-03-2009, 09:52 PM
Thanks for your input. That might be a good idea also. I will research that too. Any driver suggestions?

Thanks for the advise. Alot of people have been saying to go with the Boston SPZ60. Do yall know how it compares to the Focal K2P or kr2. Thanks

12-05-2009, 11:44 AM
Depending on the vehicle, why not just do a set of horns and a good midbass. Loud as f**k and sound **** good doing it.

Have any interest in some CDT stuff?

I would also like to compare these speakers, just not sure where to hear them in person in dallas

Focal K2P/KR2
Morel Tempo 6
Morel Elate
Rainbow Germ
Ranibow Profi Vanadium
HertsHSK(High Energy)
Re Audio xxx
Boston pro
Boston SPZ60

Out of all those I've listened to, I would suggest either the Dotech Ovation 6 or the MLK165. The Dotech gives great output and the tweeter is a little more laid back. The MLK165 gets LOUD as HELL but and the tweeter can get a little aggressive at times in the small chamber. Good thing is if you can fit it, you can use the large chamber. The focals are nice but a little sharp for my taste. Bostons are a well balanced set but they are like that character on a video game that has avg everything. Nothing stands out too much but its a solid performer. The rainbow germs IMHO have a great tweeter but lack midbass compared to some of the others listed. The vanadiums have a nice tight mid and great tweet but lack a little low end umph.

Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot for the advise everyone. Keep it coming :). I am still doing research on everything yall mentioned. Prob this week I will be making a purchase.

12-05-2009, 06:45 PM
May not be the size your looking for but my Old School Kicker Resolution set would get as loud if not louder then most of those listed... People overlook them becasue the name. Just check out the build quality in my FS thread.

12-05-2009, 06:49 PM
My bad basebalz13, no not familiar with CDT. I know I am missing alot of good speakers that I am not aware of. I will take a look at them.

12-05-2009, 07:02 PM
Thanks for the offer Korn, I will let you know

12-05-2009, 09:36 PM
Be sure to check out the PPI 355cs, or 356cs comps. Not listed on your choices, but well worth a listen. They are the former A/D/S speakers. Very nice, all the way around. And, get pretty loud with moderate power. Also, cheaper than many of your other choices.

That said, if you can get them, I'm going to try the Boston SPZ's next, myself.

12-05-2009, 09:39 PM
skip the temp 6's.

they do get loud as **** (loudest speakers ive ever had when i put 300w to each channel), but the cones crack very easy even with moderate use. maybe they all dont, but both of mine did.

oh and skip the pro60's. neither of my two sets were what i would consider loud with hiphop or reggae with he same 300w per channel. hell ill sell you my set for $175 shipped

12-05-2009, 09:48 PM
I just got some HSK 165s and they are great. Maybe check out the MLKs if you can afford them, if not the HSK 165s rock.

12-05-2009, 10:26 PM
Hey I agree, the morel temp is good but not in the same category as some of the others, Don't get me wrong they are amazing for the price but just compete with some other of the others I listed.

12-07-2009, 02:15 PM
we need more choices,your not confused enough

12-07-2009, 03:51 PM
Haha, I am starting to think alot are good choices and just boils down to what I can get the best deal on.
